    2006 4wd ext cab: I rotated my wheels/tires. Before I got started I noticed all four wheels were corroding with the finish blistering. Then after I had the lug nusts off the wheels were corroded to the flanges -- BIG TIME! I had to get a long heavy logging chain and whip-pull those suckers off the flanges -- glad I was not out in the deep woods with a flat!

    I did the rotation and re-install, but what should I do to keep them from corrode-welding back onto the flanges again? I may have to buy new rims and just cut the wire to the TPS receiver. Noticing frame rust too, what's up with Toyota and this rust/corrosion stuff?

    I usually have a local garage change my oil, but the past three times I have done it. I always made such a danged mess because the the remote oil filter base with the up right filter drains out old oil when I tilt it off the base. The base has that collection pool thing around the bottom, but its too small to hold all the excess and oil spills down on the garage floor. Then there is that pool of nasty oil in the collection collar around the bottom of the base. Today I had a Mitey-Vac ready to pull the oil out of the collection base, but cleaning that up is no holiday. There must be some method to the madness of this design -- how is supposed to be done?

    My 20# sledge hammer would not budge them. A loop of heavy log chain through the spokes and then slapped down violently will bring them off or break them. I thought about antisieze or similar, but have not seen that done --- guess I don't get out enough these days...
